Cancer and Aries rising: its meaning

Cancer and Aries Ascendant in your horoscope

Your Sun sign and your Ascendant sign are both Cardinal. Although they are very different, they have in common the sense of initiative and the will to protect or to be in charge. They also share the same feature which endows you with a touch of naivety and freshness.

Your individualistic nature is strengthened by your Aries Ascendant which influences your behaviour in society and urges you to be pushy or in the best cases, very spontaneous. However, your daredevil outward appearance is misleading. When you are in familiar settings, which means when you are with your friends and relatives, your bold tendencies become calmer.


Then, your Cancer Sun takes over, and people discover your true personality marked by exacerbated sensitivity, fickleness, and complexity. Aries acts swiftly, whereas Cancer imagines all sorts of plans before taking action.

Despite your patriarchal, stubborn, lively, and combative airs, you jealously guard your little secrets and you tremendously enjoy getting lost in them.

The Ascendant and the Sun in sign

If you have a doubt about your sign or your Ascendant, you can get it immediately.

The rising sign, i.e. the sign which crosses the eastern horizon at the moment of birth, is a major element of the natal chart because it describes our general behaviour and our outward appearance and indicates how people perceive us when they meet us for the first time.

It is important to grasp the difference between the Ascendant sign - the rising sign - and the Sun sign, i.e., the sign in which the Sun is posited at the moment of birth. Unlike the Ascendant, the Sun sign refers to the deepest part of us which is more genuine but less accessible because it is meant for our friends and relatives only.
